Open University Study Programme for Pump Engineers


Next English programme starts in March 2018

The programme is an academic distance-learning study course with only two classroom courses to be attended (two weeks each). The free time management allows the participants to define their own pace of progress within the programme which corresponds to a time equivalent of approximately 400 hours. The course “Certified Energy Consultants for Pumps and Pump Systems” is integrated into the programme. Advantages:

  • Flexible time-management
  • Practice-oriented training by renowned pump experts
  • Developed by university professors and leading engineers
  • Open to all engineers and professionals working with pumps

Students start with the basic courses, providing theoretical knowledge on the interaction between pump and system presenting different layouts and types of pumps. Practical knowledge in the fields of control, operation and maintenance is followed by modules on drive control and system regulation, pump operation, life cycle cost and the practice-oriented selection of appropriate pumps. This is essential for reliability as well as for energy consulting and energy saving. Finally two branch-related modules have to be chosen according to the needs, interest or professional environment of each participant. These modules provide plant and process-related skills for particular industrial sectors as well as consolidation of basic knowledge.

Teaching staff is recruited from the leading European Technical Universities of Berlin, Graz and Erlangen. Internationally renowned experts from leading German, Austrian and Swiss industrial enterprises could be attracted for the development of the studying material for the various modules and on the spot demonstration of practical applications.

The target group for the Pump Engineer programme is not just engineering graduates, but also technicians and sales staff or anyone who is dealing with pumps and procedural plants in their professional life. Our English course is especially designed for employees of companies operating in an international field, often encountering the need for improved knowledge on the construction, operation and maintenance of pumps.
